Who we are?
PMC Center or Product Management Community Center is an international nonprofit product community, created in 2015 to unite product oriented people, generate the environment and opportunities for professional networking and growth.
Product Management Community Center piloted first ProductCamp in Lviv and then expanded to Kyiv. Now, we drive product management focused events of different formats such as MeetUps, Workshops, Conferences, Product Mornings, etc. in Ukraine, Poland, Bulgaria, USA.
What is Product Management?
Product management is an organizational function that guides every step of a product’s lifecycle: from development, to positioning and pricing, by focusing on the product and its customers first and foremost. To build the best possible product, product managers advocate for customers within the organization and make sure the voice of the market is heard and heeded.Product managers are typically found at companies that are building products or technology for customer or internal use. This role evolved from the brand manager position that is often found at consumer packaged goods companies.
The product manager is responsible for the strategy, roadmap, and feature definition for that product or product line. The position may also include marketing, forecasting, and profit and loss (P&L) responsibilities.
Activities span from strategic to tactical and includes the following objectives:
- Set a product vision and strategy that is differentiated and delivers unique value based on customer demands. This includes defining personas and analyzing market and competitive conditions.
- Define what the product team will deliver and the timeline for implementation. This includes creating a release plan, capturing actionable feedback and ideas, and prioritizing features.
- Provide cross-functional leadership, most notably between engineering teams, sales and marketing, and support. A key aspect of this is communicating the product roadmap and keeping everyone informed of updates.
What we do?
Everything started with ProductCamp, an unconference event inspired worldwide by Pragmatic Marketing, that is user-driven unconference that brings together passionate product managers and marketers who are interested in collaborating to share insights, learning the best practices, and networking with other top professionals in the product community.
All our events focus on Product Management - achievements, challenges, best practices, lessons learned, and other topics valuable to the participants, as they decide about the most part of the content on the day of ProductCamp.
